About this mezcal
Vamonos Riendo Mezcal is a triple-distilled ensamble vegan pechuga using maguey Espadin and Tobala. The Tobala mezcal is sourced from from Soledad Salinas using plants that have been growing for 14 years at 6,500 feet above sea level. The Espadin mezcal is sourced from San Juan Del Rio. To minimize deforestation, only remnants of black and white oak are used to fire the pits and the copper stills. The two mezcals are brought together in Tlalixtac de Cabrera and are double distilled together to create an ensamble.
Inspired by pechuga-style mezcals that are meant to celebrate births, weddings, holidays, and other significant events, fruit is added to the still for a third distillation — making a vegan style pechuga. There are notes of melon, pineapple, grapefruit and mandarin balanced by the sweetness of cocoa with notes of mint and anise. There is a long smooth finish of caramel with a citrus bite.

Vamonos Riendo is committed to supporting local communities to build a better future. The agaves are grown by the owners of the palenques and the surrounding community.
The company has themselves aligned with SACRED, a non-profit that helps improve lives in the rural Mexican communities where heirloom agave spirits are made. In 2020, they sponsored the construction of a rainfall-collection system to mitigate water insecurity in the community of Zaachila, Oaxaca.
